Recent university-based research has found a new natural alternative for arthritis treatment. The research, conducted by The Australian Center for Complementary Medicine Education and Research (ACCMER), reveals that SeatonTM Green Lipped Mussel Extract has the property to slow down the progression of Osteoarthritis.
The Green Lipped Mussel Extract (GLM) is an edible shellfish which is commonly found in the waters of New Zealand, and is a major diet of population in New Zealand. Studies conducted by the American Research Programme confirmed the potential of the marine mollusc in treatment of arthritis. This was followed by series of clinical trials, which found GLM to be effective in relieving symptoms association with arthritis.
SeatonTM Green Lipped Mussel Extract is a product that is manufactured by Healtheries of New Zealand. During the research conducted by ACCMER, the bio-chemical properties of the product were studied, so as to determine whether the product has the required activities for an effective anti-arthritic agent.
The study was supported by the historical records of the usefulness of the product for treatment of osteoarthritis. It was discovered that SeatonTM has a range of activities that are potentially useful for arthritic treatment, and was also a good anti-inflammatory agent. As opposed to other contemporary arthritis drugs, it was found to reduce the chances of formation of blood clots, and also helped in removing the clots that continue to form.
This indicates that apart from producing symptomatic relief from the condition, SeatonTM can be expected to slow down the progression of the disease. However, just as is the case with other complimentary medicines it may take several weeks before the results become evident, but once proven, it is likely to have multiple-beneficial effects.
Complementary medicines usually provide multiple benefits while also reducing negative effects considerably, and hence they are the preferred first line treatments among patients, particularly for conditions such as arthritis.
Currently, Seatone is sold in more than 30 countries and has helped several thousands across the world.
